Nice flash animation. Seems to be pretty straightforward.

H:

Just a grammar note. Compound adjectives are hyphenated in both US and UK English, i.e., clear-blue sky, while compound adverbs are not, i.e., wholly functional breasts [Wink] .

And, as your (Anglo-Jewish-gay city planner) Charles Ashbee argued: apples, bananas, and pears.

BTW, Where does one find the Israel Naturist Society?

Hannibal -

Impressive design. Straigthfoward, simple to navigate and eye-catching (particularly the rather striking girl).

The layout looks pretty good overall. I didn't spend the time to go over it very thoroughly but I saw only a few things I would criticize.

1) I don't like the white and grey text on the grey background. I think you need more contrast there. It strains the eyes, especially on older people.

2) Your using tables for your layout, thats a pretty outdated and inefficient way to layout a site these days. Tables hurt search engine ratings. Also, if its going to be a high traffic site the bandwidth waste from tables can add up.

3) Are you changing the font size there on the main pane? It looks smaller. If so, I'd advise against that. let people set their own font sizes through the browser and they'll be happier.

Anyhow, looks good overall. I'm just trying to give you a couple things to think about.

Hannibal, your naievete is showing [Wink] . The Israel Naturist Society is your major nudist group. Unfortunately, all their directions to their campsites and beaches is in Hebrew.

Oh ...! It's TOURISTS you looking for; I thought it said TERRORISTS [Big Grin] . I was wondering why you were trying attract terrorists ...; on the other hand, that might be a good idea turning terrorists into tourists, but I'd keep my eye on them. That's easier in a nudist camp, you know.

I think you guys are under the impression that i made the site? i didnt, my work is more in the PHP/MySQL stuff, and less in flash.

i wanted to see if israel's new project has a chance.

Javelin, concerning the desprate situation i am now, if ill get a hold of that girl, there's no way in hell i am going to give her to some one else, foreign affairs or no [Smile]

Richard, if thats what you are looking for, there is a nudist beach in Tel aviv, there are also several up north around Haifa i think.
and the beach in Eilat is preaty "free" atleast when it comes to topless sweedish women....

I wanted to hit the last big tourist push for the millenium. As God loves a good laugh, I hear the Palestinians and their beloved intifada destroyed their economy more then it hit the Israelis.

Good luck with this one.

we do have zoos, the big one is the Safari at Ramat-Gan

we have lots of museums, Tel Aviv is full with them, plus there is the sience museum in Haifa, very interesting, and there are lots of history museums in Jerusalem.

in amusment parks we are lacking unfortionatly the israeli amusment parks are no match for the avarage six flags.

It all looks nice and all, but I don't think it will see much success honestly. Israel looks too unstable to most people I know, though personally I'd like to visit.

It may very well be my next international vacation.

I figured Israel must have at least one decent zoo, but you couldn't tell it from this site. It seems mostly geared toward nightlife, beach lounging, hiking, and the religious draws...I have no doubt there's more stuff to do than that.

there are pretty girls too.

theres also a florishing "trecking industry"

that is, you can do lots of hicking, jeep tours, camping etc in the Negev desert, and northern Israel. lots of amazing site seeing.
there are also several famous caves you can visit, very pretty crust caves (stalegmites)

you can have a nice week in israel i guess
